That priceless smile, magical sunset, funny fail. Photo frames put those moments you’ve captured on display, so you’re surrounded by meaning and memories. We have lots of picture frames to choose from, whether you want the warmth of wood, a pop of colour, a shiny metal or an eclectic collage.
Adding a personal touch with picture frames
Decorating a room with artwork and photography is a great way to express your individual style. Whether you have a piece of art to display, or want a daily reminder of a special memory or person, hanging picture frames can help you turn a room that is a blank canvas into a space full of personality. If you’ve got something that you would like framing, but aren’t quite sure where to begin, we can help.
Choosing the right picture frames
The picture or photo frame you pick depends on what you want to display. Multi photo frames are a striking yet space-efficient choice for when you want to show a group of photographs together. For simple prints, black or wooden picture frames create a minimalist look.
When it comes to choosing a material, think about the purpose you want the picture frames to serve. If these are purely for decoration, then choose what suits your style. But if you want something that’s going to protect your artwork as well as look good, consider more durable options.
Creating your perfect arrangement
Your picture frames should provide a focal point, adding character or colour to a space. Remember, it’s all about proportion – and while a large picture or photo frame will look good on a big wall, a small frame will be lost.
For a simple arrangement, organise the picture frames in a square or rectangular grid format. If you want to try something different, then choose a triangle or diamond shape. Prefer to freestyle it? Choose an assortment of the same picture frames in different sizes, testing your layout on the floor, then take a photo to help you hang them in the same configuration.
Complementing the rest of your space
Keep in mind the other fixtures and furnishings you’ve got in the room. Hold the picture frames up in each of the rooms you’re redecorating so you can see what works where – and when everything is in place, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the effect a few well-positioned pieces can have.
